Badgers At Gophers: Wisconsin Increases Lead To 14-0

It didn't take them nearly as long as the previous scoring drive, but the end result was exactly the same.

After forcing the Gophers into a three-and-out on their first possession, the Badgers started on their own 49-yard line, and needed just three plays to find the end zone. Russell Wilson found Nick Toon for 21 yards on the first play of the drive, and followed that up with a 16-yard completion to Bradie Ewing. Montee Ball then took a handoff and went up the middle completely untouched for his second touchdown of the afternoon. The extra point by Philip Welch gave the Badgers a 14-0 lead.

If the Gophers want to have any shot at taking back Paul Bunyan's Axe in this one, they need to start putting up a bit more resistance against this Wisconsin offense. Sadly, it doesn't look as though they have the ability to do that.

With a little more than four minutes left in the first quarter of play, the Minnesota Golden Gophers trail the Wisconsin Badgers by a score of 14-0.
